Love at First Sound!
Xperience is a revolutionary technology platform from Signia, the company that has taken over Siemens’ well-known range of audiological devices. Available in Behind-the-Ear and Receiver-in-Canal models, Xperience is one of the most advanced hearing aid technologies around. As the manufacturer states, it has been “designed for professionals,” meaning that it packs plenty of high-end features that make life easier for wearers. From settings that make the wearer’s own voice sound more natural and easier on the ear, to soundscape processing which makes it possible to pick out conversations in the noisiest, most complex environments, Signia has added a variety of functions which set this hearing aid apart from its competitors. Let’s look at them in a little more detail and find out whether Signia’s Xperience hearing aids are right for you.
The same technology which underlies Xperience’s own voice processing abilities has been harnessed to detecting the voices of others. By using advanced beam detection sensors, the hearing aid can zero in on specific individuals, resulting in an exceptional degree of spatial awareness. So, when you are dining in a loud restaurant or trying to understand a lively discussion at work, you can easily pick out specific sentences from individuals, instead of their words getting lost in the background. This directional capability is complemented by one of the most powerful signal qualities on the market.
Signia’s Xperience is able to handle an input of 113dB, making it suited to use even in loud settings, and it also has a broad dynamic range, which enhances its general sound quality. Both the own voice and directional abilities of the hearing aid are based around Signia’s path-breaking technology, which is as close as any hearing aid has yet come to mimicking the way that our ears detect and filter different elements. This precision one of the key reasons these hearing aids are marketed at “professionals.”
A User-Friendly, High Quality Hearing Aid
When all of these features are combined with Signia’s commitment to customer service, the results are devices that offer both advanced tech and ease of use. For instance, Xperience users can access the Signia TeleCare service, which allows them to work with audiologists to fine-tune their hearing aids. Instead of booking appointments and wasting time with clinical visits, audiologists can work remotely with patients – a much more efficient way to do things. However, as you might expect, Xperience technology is not a budget hearing aid, retailing at a substantially higher price than other Signia models like primax technology. Then again, for professionals who appreciate its features, the extra cost will be worth it.
